Government Litigation and Litigation Avoidance

Disputes with government entities present a unique set of challenges that are vastly different from disputes among private parties, with much higher stakes. The attorneys at Gardere help clients devise smart strategies to manage the broad array of legal problems that can develop through government disputes at the local, state or federal level.  

Our first strategy when it comes to assisting clients with government disputes is litigation avoidance. By being engaged early in the dispute, our team can help clients craft creative solutions and provide answers to the governments questions before formal investigations even begin, potentially resolving the dispute before lawsuits are filed.  When litigation is avoided, our clients save money and better preserve business relationships with the government entities with which they will have to continue to do business.  

If an issue cannot be resolved by litigation avoidance, our team of trial lawyers has a proven record of protecting our clients’ interests in court.  At Gardere, we have one of the largest and strongest trial practices in the region, and we are experienced in litigating against government agencies nationwide. Our litigators work closely with attorneys from other relevant and heavily regulated practices, including environmental, antitrust, chemical and energy, condemnation and eminent domain, insurance regulatory and Medicaid fraud, to deepen our bench and extend our capabilities in government disputes.  

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
